The Grapoid is operated by a standard cordless drill, pneumatic wrench, or hand tool. The Grapoid is placed over the bag and the drill (or tool) is inserted into the connector on the Grapoid's top. When the drill's trigger is pulled, the Grapoid's jaws clinch around the bag, forcing it upward and free of the grid plate.
For felt bags, one of the jaws is replaced by a special version that dimples the bag. The Grapoid is available in two sizes, accommodating most known top removal pleated and felt bag sizes.
